Maze Runner : The Scorch Trials - Official Bloopers
You will not want to miss it. The forests burned, the lakes and rivers dried up, and the oceans swelled. Then came a plague, and fever spread across the globe. Families died, violence reigned, and man killed man. And then they found the perfect boy.

In the opening scene of The Maze Runner , our uniquely special protagonist Thomas wakes up on a zooming elevator with his mind wiped clean of memories. Mild spoilers in the service of trying to figure out what the hell is going on. That explained nothing. Is this just more YA dystopia? Sort of.
